Hi there peoples,
Just wondering if anyone has some photos and tips for changing brake pads (front and rear)? Any pitfalls to look out for?

Cheers 🍻

No pics...sorry.

Easy job overall. Clean/inspect calipers and pistons before pushing them back in. Make sure the fluid does not overflow the reservoir. Rear is a more of a pita to get the caliper back on the slider while lining up the axel and brake disc at the same time. Make sure to reinstall the wheel spacers on the correct sides. 38 NM for the front calipers to forks if memory serves. There is a torque spec pinned to the top of this tab by a member which proves helpful. Remove one side at a time, press clip and remove clip pin and clip, pads fall out.  New pads in. Reuse clips and pins. Reinstall and hand tighten caliper to fork. Squeeze lever until pads engage. hold and torque to spec.

There may be other useful tips out there but this has always worked for me.

You might want to consider a full fluid flush too.
